Hi Stephen P. King 

The machine or program that made the calculation
doesn't have to be real, it's purely an a priori,
a given.

Dear Roger, 

    Please think deeply about what exactly it means to "calculate such a 
universe in perfect harmony". It only makes sense to me that such a calculation 
is equivalent to solving a NP-Hard problem with an infinity of variables. I 
agree that we do seem to observe a harmonious universe, but only if we do not 
look too closely. When we look closely, we do see a disharmony: Observations of 
violation of Bell's Theorem.
